Magical Hat no Buttobi Turbo Daibouken
DecapAttack, a westernised version of the Japanese game Magical Hat no Buttobi Tabo! Daibōken (まじかるハットのぶっとびターボ！大冒険 Majikaru Hatto no Buttobi Tābo! Daibōken?), is a video game for the Mega Drive/Genesis console. The game is also a part of the Sega Genesis Collection (Sega Mega Drive Collection) for the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable and Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection) for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It is almost identical in terms of gameplay to the Japanese title Magical Hat Flying Turbo Adventure. However, the graphics, characters, music, and level designs were nearly all changed, since Flying Turbo Adventure was based on the anime series Magical Hat for which the license was not obtained outside of Japan. Both are updates of the Master System game Psycho Fox, and also the NES game Kid Kool.

Chuck D. Head, a mummy created by mad scientist Dr. Frank N Stein, is sent to defeat Max D. Cap, who has returned from the Underworld with his army, and reform the scattered islands. After defeating Max, Chuck sluggishly returns home, where Stein rewards him by transforming him into a real human.
The player controls a living mummy, named Chuck D. Head, through various side-scrolling levels in an effort to battle an underworld army led by Max D. Cap. Levels contain many enemies and hazards that can harm or kill Chuck, and power-ups to collect; at the end of the last level in every area there is a boss to defeat. The player has a small amount of health units, displayed as hearts, and a small amount of lives. The fictional island the game takes place on, shaped like a skeleton, is split apart into many pieces. Individual levels are named after parts of the skeleton, such as Abdomainland or Armington. Some levels require the player to collect a certain item for Dr. Frank N. Stein, the mad scientist who created Chuck.
Chuck resembles an ordinary mummy, except for the fact that he has no head and he has a face implanted in his torso. During the game, Chuck attacks enemies by extending his face out to hit them or by jumping on them. While jumping, players can repeatedly hit the jump button to slow down Chuck's descent. Chuck may collect a skull power-up; which will sit on his shoulders like a head and can be thrown at enemies. Like a boomerang, it will return to him no matter what it hits, or where it goes, but if Chuck gets hit by an enemy or hazard, he will lose the skull. During the game Chuck may also collect a variety of potions, which can be collected and used at the player's leisure. The potions consist of powerups typical for the genre, such as invincibility, instantly eliminating all enemies on screen, increasing speed and jumping power, and increasing the range and power of Chuck's punch.
